As part of Aboriginal A w a r e n e s s W e e k ( AAWS), 90 members of CFB Bagotville took part in an Aboriginal style dinner at the Officers' Mess on May 16th.
For the occasion, chef Jensy Grégroire and her team presented a menu with indigenous flavors: venison terrine and croutons, pork loin with dune pepper, green salad with salmon and vinaigrette with flowers, onion jam with spruce with a maple rice and blueberry pudding as dessert. The AAWS was created in 1992 and runs for four days ( 22- 25 May 2018 for this year). This national celebration is intended to provide Canadians with an opportunity to increase their knowledge of Canada's Aboriginal Peoples history. Aboriginal people have a proud tradition of military service, and this week invites us to take this time to recognize the many contributions and achievements that these peoples have made and continue to make in the Canadian Armed Forces.
